As Seen On

What is Homes for Dinner?

Homes for Dinner is largest gathering of simultaneous dinner parties in support of ending chronic homelessness in the City of Toronto. Regardless of whether you participate with a sponsored, celebrity-chef or catered dinner or fundraise on your own terms with the ‘host your own’ option, we invite you to join us on November 5th, 2022 to continue the conversation. 

Toronto should be Homefull. We believe it can and will be; a place to live, thrive, and be hopeful for the future. This will only be possible with your help. 

Our Collective Impact

As a charitable organization, Homes First relies on the generous support of our donors, sponsors and community advocates who continue to believe in our mission and help us get one step closer to ending chronic homelessness in the city of Toronto.  

It’s almost that time of year again, Homes for Dinner —a night to celebrate home, community, connection and hope. We hope that you are just as excited as us and join in making a Homefull Toronto.

About Homes First

Homes First currently serves over 1600 individuals every night across our 11 shelters and 14 supportive housing programs; we remain one of the largest providers of non-profit housing in the City of Toronto. However, a roof over someone’s head is just the beginning…

The challenges of homelessness are compounded by the lingering effects of the pandemic and the current economic environment – skyrocketing costs of living and the worst inflation Canada has experienced in more than 30 years. 

Join us in ending chronic homelessness in the City of Toronto. Together, we can make a homefull Toronto.
